3 Reasons Why She Should Wear a Conflict-Free Moissanite Engagement Ring

"If you haven’t done much research on diamonds or even heard the term “blood diamond,” you might be surprised to learn that many diamonds have been mined in war zones and are then traded on the black market to fund warfare and rebel groups. Diamonds mined in these conditions are known as “conflict diamonds” and the miners often face terrible conditions such as violence, starvation, and disease.

Careful research would show that a diamond engagement ring can do more than just hurt your bank account—it can also potentially be the direct result of pain and suffering in a war-torn community." - Excerpt from www.weddingbee.com

 

It is always a good idea to do your own research before purchasing something as valuable as an engagement ring. Here are 3 big reasons why the love of your life should wear a conflict-free Moissanite engagement ring.

 

1. Your Engagement Ring is a Symbol of Your Love

Wouldn't it be great if this symbol is conflict free, ethical and socially responsible? A diamond that was unethically sourced or a diamond that someone may have had to suffer for may suddenly lose its symbolism of love. The very least you could do is take the extra steps needed to ensure that your engagement ring center stone is not mined by someone who had to endure unfair or unsafe labor practices. You can make sure of this by choosing Moissanite, instead of other gemstones like Diamond. 

Moissanite came from a very rare and scarce mineral born from the stars that was originally discovered in 1893 in a meteor crater. It is so rare that it needs to be grown in a lab so that more people can enjoy its brilliance and sparkle in the form of fine jewellery. Our partners, Moissanite International (Australia) and Charles and Colvard (USA) are able to grow Moissanite in a lab to deliver you an artfully crafted, socially responsible and eternally brilliant jewel. As such, it is ethically grown, free of mining and mining conflict and won’t hurt the environment. This is how love is supposed to be right? Pure, Good and Mindful.

2. She will feel good with your choice of a Conflict-Free Engagement Ring

When She looks down at her ring, you want her to be able to reflect on the love and happiness that it brings. An ethically compromised engagement ring may take-away those precious feelings. It’s much better at the end of the day that you know exactly where your engagement ring came from so that you are not contributing to a cycle of violence, poverty, and human rights violations. All it takes is a little bit of research on your end to know for certain that your ring is conflict-free.

That is also why here at Lucce, we go beyond using Moissanite. We are proud to use gold that is ethically and responsibly sourced.
